REAL NAVIGATION With today’s Garmin nüvi® lineup
Break Free from the Bars

The Garmin nüvi is GPS navigation engineered for use in a car. The latest nüvi models offer highly accurate map data and turn-by-turn directions that sound as if spoken by a friend. Big, bright screens allow you to focus on the road. Steady, dependable information relies on satellites, not cell towers. nüvi is dedicated guidance, with models and features to fit any driver. Why ask for directions from anyone else?

All features not included on all models.
Foursquare® Data

Need help finding the perfect places to go? Our POI database now includes additional search information sourced from Foursquare. Foursquare adds millions more points of interest, so you can discover new and popular restaurants, shops, services and more in your area.

Connect to Smartphone Link with a Bluetooth®-enabled nüvi and you can access real-time Foursquare data. You can also check-in and read detailed information, such as customer ratings, price ranges, hours of service and more.

Garmin Real Directions with
Garmin Real Voice

Hear the new sound of advanced guidance. Improved, intuitive navigation feels like driving with a friend. Garmin Real Directions guide using easy-to-see landmarks, buildings and traffic lights – rather than hard-to-read street names. Garmin Real Voice is refined speech technology that speaks in a natural-sounding voice. Available only from Garmin.

Direct Access

Direct Access simplifies navigating to select complex destinations, like shopping malls and airports. Direct Access can find a specific place within a larger location. Rather than just guide you to the shopping mall, Direct Access can navigate through the parking lot, to the closest entrance and give details about a specific store inside. For example: “Arriving at Oak Park Mall.
Lacoste is inside on Level 2.”
